What people are saying about Prague

Overall rating

4.1 / 5

based on 6,413 reviews

Beautifully clean boat. Very attentive staff. Plenty to eat and with a very varied choice there was something for everyone. Whether hot or cold or a mix of both you could visit the buffet as many times as you wanted. To finish off a great mix of puddings/cakes and cheese. Entertainment was included by an accordionist who sometimes burst into song as we were enjoying our delicious lunch. The only downside, which wasn’t their fault, was that we couldn’t travel the length of the River as was advertised. We were warned beforehand but didn’t feel the need to complain as we were leaving Prague that evening!

What a fantastic evening. Amazing band, food constantly re-filled. Great quality food and allergens on the back of food labels. Beautiful views of Prague lit up. Would definitely recommend! Lovely chilled evening!

Excellent experience.. hassle free to book the tickets online. Nice ambience and adequate food spread. Cruise staffs are accommodative and polite.

Beautiful, modern ship. No waiting times. Everything clean and friendly. Tip top! To recommend!
